The difficulty of this piece is more accurate as directly in between 4 - 6 and 7+.

This piece is my 3rd piece (the second one before it has been disowned by me because I did not like it) that I have composed. When I was composing this, I was still experimenting with rhythms, chords, and jumps. This piece is widely considered by many that I personally know as their favorite out of the pieces they have heard, and I would still have to agree with them. This piece, while nothing overly special, has an almost classical/choral feel to it. I’m not 100% sure of what it is exactly, and I’m the composer of it. But this piece is extremely enjoyable. A note about the time signature in Ritual, it is 13/8. While it is an impractical time signature to actually count, once a person gets into the piece, the rhythms begin to come naturally without counting, or at least I find it that way.

Also to note, this piece is very dark. I do intend on trying/attempting/making a brighter version in the near future. Also, just to clarify, Dance is not a funeral march (one of my teachers said it sounded like a funeral march, so it is a bit of a joke for me right now).

Feel free to comment or review, or critique any of my pieces. I’m not gonna get any better if I don’t know ways in which I can improve.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
